"We stayed here for just over two months. The apartment is in a great neighborhood of Palermo Soho. Lots of shops, restaurants, parks, clubs, music, etc. We walked nearly everywhere from here and only took cabs to the airports and ferry terminal. Cabs are plentiful and easy to get right outside your door. The apartment is comfortable. The pull-out couch worked well for our adult son's visit. Not a fan of the bed that sits so low to the ground, but I guess that's very common in Argentina. It was comfortable but a bit soft for our tastes. The small kitchen was fine. We mainly stored snacks and drinks in the refrigerator. We ate out nearly all the time. Whatever we needed in the kitchen was there, ie corkscrew, paper towels, silverware, dishes, etc. We just had to replenish some supplies since we stayed there so long.
The shower was fine..plenty strong and lots of hot water after a short wait. Bathroom was adequate; towels were high quality as were the bed linens. We appreciated that! Balcony furniture was a bit uncomfortable, but nice to have a place to sit. The owner has ordered the sliding door to be replaced; we couldn't lock it. We worked the entire time we stayed in Argentina and really appreciated all the effort the owner and manager went through to get the highest speed internet available in Buenos Aires. Worked consistently great.
The biggest issue we had with the apartment was outside the control of the owner: the street noise. We live in a downtown area at home but never appreciated the concept of noise pollution until we traveled to South America. The noise is fairly constant except from 6-9 am. It's really important to either bring a sound machine with you or to have an app on your phone to block out the noise from the bars, the squeaky buses, loud motorcycles, etc. It's part of being in a big South American city, but this area appears especially noisy at night with all the bars and restaurants.
While the apartment isn't what we would consider luxurious, it worked out well for us. We traveled around Argentina and appreciated having our stuff kept safely in the apartment. I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice neighborhood and a safe, comfortable place to stay. The managers were great with this suggestions and help. They checked in on us to make sure all was ok. We appreciated that. Also nice to have weekly cleaning."
